Wordfence Security is a free enterprise class security plugin that includes a firewall, virus scanning, real-time traffic with geolocation and more.
In addition to providing a lot of protection of the site, the WordFence folks have a security e-mail list that will send out information on issues in the wild. Good info,
Awesome! I never knew how many hack attempts our clients were getting. We use WordFence on every single one of our clients' websites.
WordFence is a bacon-saver, especially given the increase on attacks on web sites across the Internet. This past weekend, the server support personnel from my hosting company alerted on a file calling itself the WordFence readme.txt. After all logs were read, passwords changed and other actions, it turned out that it was a false-positive.
WordFence itself was a vital tool in resolving the issue Tech Support thought was there. I honestly can't think of another WordPress plugin that can match the power, speed and aggressiveness of WordFence program - either paid or free, you're safe.
How many plugins can I say that about?
After trying a couple of different, highly rated plugins to secure my site which were disabled due to complex instructions or apparently confusing goals. I tried Wordfence and have been very happy with it.
After 6 months of testing on a few of my sites I can say this is one of the most robust and useful plugins I've come across. The news letter alone has alerted me to vulnerabilities in themes and plugins I commonly use which allowed me to fix before mischief makers could cause me a problem. I recommend you include extra security to your WordPress installs and Wordfence is the best solution I have found yet.
Really an outstanding security fence. Does exactly what it claims, and it claims to do quite a bit.
This is an awesome plugin. NO more hacking of my WordPress sites - ever. 100% PERFECT lock out of malicious users. Best of all, timely notification via email of security issues found in plugins and themes.
I use this plugin in all of my WordPress websites, and I couldn't be any happier with the frequent alerts.
I don't know a whole lot about internet security but I do know that Wordfence makes me feel safe. They keep me updated with what is happening on my pages.
I have only been using WordPress for a couple of months and could see that it needed some special security. And what better than it was free.
